Thursday, February 20. 2014

The schedule for today is D-AG-C-B-A

D Block Social Studies 10 - Today we will apply what we learned yesterday in class to the physical geography of Canada. I'll give you a five themes organizer / chart for the six physiogeographic regions of Canada. You'll need to use the Horizons textbook (pages 18–23) and I want you to consider which of the five themes of geography is being described for each region. On the handout I give you, categorize the information into the correct theme. Be sure to include at least one piece of information in each category. Some information may be appropriate for more than one category and may be reused, but be prepared to defend your decision. Let me give you an the Appalachians section it indicates that the region covers the maritime provinces. So on the chart for the Appalachian region in the location column you'd put "the maritime provinces". That simple!

B Block Geography 12 - Today we'll work in our week 3 package on  igneous rocks and plutonic features. We'll have a diagram to complete and then there will be three questions to work on (12, 13, & 14 from page 366 in your Geosystems textbook). Before we do that let's see what Bill Nye has to tell us about Rocks and Soil...Bill?

A Block Social Studies 11 - Yesterday we looked at the qualities of leadership. I asked you to think about people who you would follow and describe what makes a good leader. Try to avoid confusing leadership with success and popularity. So in partners you brainstormed a list of people who you think make good leaders and today I need you to identify the qualities or traits of leadership that you admire or think are important. We'll pick up our discussion from yesterday and when we're finished going over your ideas work on the following questions:

1. What are your top five qualities of leadership? Explain them with examples to help.
2. How can leaders motivate people to follow them and get people to be involved in social issues?
3. What is the worst fault a leader can have? Why?
4. Can you be a good leader but not be a good communicator? Why or why not?
5. Why is it important to have a good leader as the Prime Minister of Canada?
